"Blue Mosque Shivers" Blue Mosque - Sultan Ahmed Mosque Tip by mrclay2000

  Sultanahmet from the galleries of St Sophia
by mrclay2000

When it snows, and the skies are sulky gray rather than salmon from the rampant pollution, the various domes of St Sophia and Sultanahmet take on an ashen hue. The relative distance between the two buildings is somewhat misleading in the photo. They are separated by less than two minutes on foot.
